Weston Peick Signs Contract Extension with

Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team




Brea, CA (September 5, 2018)  – The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is pleased to announce that Weston Peick will remain with the team for the 2019 season. One of the most consistent and hardworking riders in the sport, Peick will return for his fifth year with the factory program.

The Menifee, California native continues to hone his craft and climb the ladder in what will be his 11th year on the professional circuit. Riding most of the year with torn tendons in his hand, the 27-year-old finished sixth overall in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross standings. “The Viking” strung together 11 consecutive top-ten overall finishes during the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, before missing the final round due to hand surgery. With the injury behind him, Peick expects to be better than ever in 2019.


 

“I’m excited to continue this partnership,” stated Peick. “The team has been like a family to me ever since the first day I signed with them. Being able to surround myself with such a great group of professionals has been an awesome experience. I’m looking forward to improving my results next year and having another season on the Suzuki RM-Z450. Development has gone very well, and we will be ahead of the game heading into the Anaheim Supercross opener.”



Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team manager Jeremy Albrecht is happy to continue working with Peick. “Weston has been great for us. He is a team player, and also very tough. I appreciate that he rode through the pain of an injured hand this year and gave it his all. He produced good results when other riders in that same situation probably would have thrown in the towel. Weston also really gels well with the Suzuki RM-Z450. There’s great synergy with that pairing.”
